In other news, with so many new flagships releasing in the present day, let’s take a look back and see why the Samsung Galaxy S4 is still a worthy device in 2015. First of all, the Galaxy S4 is one of the best-selling devices from Samsung.

It was launched after the Samsung Galaxy S3 and took Samsung to the peak of its smartphone market share all over the world.

The success of Galaxy S4 was a very crucial part in Samsung’s rise to Android popularity and demand. It was launched after the success of its predecessor, Galaxy S3 and the high benchmarks set by the Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung did all that was possible to release this device without any launch date compromises or release setbacks.

The Korean behemoth ended up selling millions of Galaxy S4s all over the world. However, there were some flaws with the device like an old version of TouchWiz and the cheap plastic feel whenever you hold it. In terms of operating system, everything works perfectly.

Almost all Galaxy S4s launched with the Android v4.4 KitKat update and Samsung and its common carriers have pushed out the Lollipop update as well.  In the display aspect, the S4 was perfect. Its 5inch Super AMOLED display HD display was one of the best at that time.

Even though we are looking at 2K displays at the moment, Samsung Galaxy S4’s 720p display will still appear quite brilliant, vivid and sharp. At a size of 5inches, the display is probably at its edge but it works out without any noticeable hitches. Samsung has never compromised with its camera ever since the days of Galaxy S3.

The S4’s 13megapixel camera with LED flash is still more than comparable to many of the high-specs devices of today. The Galaxy S4’s camera is quite good even without features like Optical Image Stabilization.

The 2MP camera at the front is good enough to handle your selfie needs. One of the best features of the Galaxy S4 was the presence of a removable battery.

The 2600mAh battery in the Samsung Galaxy S4 is good enough to beat flagship devices from rival smartphone companies. The longer lasting battery always matters even though performance and benchmark-wise, the S4 is no match for present-generation devices.

During the S4 era, companies started removing the option for microSD card expansions. Thankfully, the S4 retained it due to which you can still pop in an SD card whenever you like.

The Galaxy S4 had a significant modern look and polish about it, thanks to the thin bezel, on the other end as well as down the edges. The screen is placed only 2.5 millimeters away from the side and this gave it a futuristic look.

In other news, the S4 3G model has received a new Halycon custom ROM version. It is based on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 and comes with many new features and personalization options.
